Beloved National Board, Chapter Presidents and Stewards of the Greek Orthodox Ladies Philoptochos Society,
The absolute and unconditional truth of time immemorial is the Resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
The universal and timeless gift that Christ offered through His Crucifixion and Resurrection was the selfless, sacrificial love that affected nature and humankind forever. This is the most irreplaceable and unique certainty in history and the core of our Christian existence.
We see His love illumined on the candle lit faces of our family and loved ones when at midnight on Holy Saturday, we celebrate the Feast of Feasts. As followers and believers, we respond and embrace “as you did it to the least of my brethren.” Only when we share Christ’s love with our neighbors through tender and devoted service will the brightness that emanates from the Glorious Resurrection truly bless us and save us from defeating darkness. Only God can rescue us from the bonds of death because God’s victory triumphed over death. “Christ is risen from the dead. By death He has trampled upon death and bestowed life to those in the tombs.
